We are excited to be moving to a new and larger premises as from 1 September 2018. This brings new opportunities, although our move away from Philippi Village was done with a heavy heart. Our new offices will include additional office space and a larger pack shed, just a stone’s through from where we were in Philippi.
At the same time we are also upgrading our garden centres and demonstration gardens that will remain our key contact points in the community.
Our new address is 1 Boston Circle, Airport Industria North.

Abalimi Bezekhaya (meaning farmers of the home in isiXhosa), established 1982, is a non-profit micro-farming organisation that aims to provide basic human necessities for indigent persons, by assisting impoverished groups and communities within the area of Greater Cape Town known as the Cape Flats to establish and maintain their own vegetable gardens, so as to enable those groups and communities to supplement their existing, inadequate supply of food and create livelihoods.
Harvest of Hope was set up as a social business that connects the producer and consumers within the food system more closely. It allows the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of the Abalimi farmers and thus share the risks of farming through the purchase of fresh organic vegetable boxes.
